What exactly is a sarong?




It's a funny thing when I try to explain what type of business I'm in, especially to men. I've tried it several different ways but most men have never heard of a sarong. To the men reading this blog and actually know what a sarong is...well, kudos to you. You're a little more fashion forward than most. Anyhow, I say that "I have a website that sells sarongs, a sarong is a wrap that women wear over their swimsuit, I'm sure you have seen them before...you know...they tie at the waist" Oh yea, they finally figure it out. The sarong is actually a really interesting thing, it is a piece of clothing that truly has a long history and is a garment that is worn all over the world. And yes, in most other countries it is worn by men also.
I'd say in the last 10 years or so, the importance of the sarong has been over looked. Some of the major retailers aren't even carrying sarongs anymore. It's really the perfect accessory, great for travel and everyday use. It's so easy to look slouchy these days in lieu of something comfy and easy, but sarongs really take your look to another level. We all want to feel pretty.....and we are.

Sassy Sarongs Expands Shipping


As of January 2009, Sassy Sarongs can now ship to Canada for $15.00! I was excited to expand my business to our friends up north and the response has been great. Word is that Canadians love to have fun in the sun.

In addition, I have also added shipping to any military base for $4.95 using US postal. When making a purchase at the checkout, just select the appropriate military base location. I'm proud to say our first sarong shipment went to Korea!
As with any international shipment, the sarongs will have to pass through customs and the purchaser will be responsible for any duty, tariff, or customs fees.
